Yellow Dog PS3 Miscellany

November 3rd, 2006 by Crusader

Terra Soft Solutions’ CEO KaiStaats has made a few posts of interest to the yellowdog-general mailing list regarding the Yellow Dog Linuxdistribution and the SonyPlayStation 3 game console. The first discusses how the processors areexposed:

Plain and simple –the vast majority of Linux apps will not take advantage ofthe SPEs. The Cell is neither a traditional multi-core nor a collection ofDSPs. Special compile time libraries and some pretty serious re-coding arerequired to take advantage of the 6 available SPEs.

At boot, YDL shows 2 PPUs (one real, one a hyperthread) and 6 SPEs … but totake advantage of them is another story.

Next, Staats issuedan appeal to the Linux community to express interest in Flash player port:

Flash Player 9 Beta is now available for Linux, but not for the Powerarchitecture. Fortunately, Adobe offers a ‘feature request’ form:http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform

I ask each and every one of you to submit your request for Flash for YellowDog Linux in order to showcase the strength of our userbase with enthusiasmfor the forthcoming Sony Playstation 3.

I encourage you to complete the form as follows in order that we speak with asingle, simple voice making less complicated their support initiative.

The postalso contains some additional tips for petitioning Adobe.
